Arsenal goalkeeeper Kaylan Marckese will join newly promoted Bristol City on loan for the 2023-23 season. The American joined the Gunners last summer from Koge in Denmark but found her appearances restricted, starting the season as the clear number two to Manu Zinsberger.
The January signing of Canadian international Sabrina D’Angelo further blocked Marckese’s path and she will now join Bristol City for 2023-24 with Naomi Williams, who signed a pro contract in May, will now be the third choice goalkeeper.
Gio is another player who could go out on loan, her loan spell to Everton last season was cut short due to the injury situation. With Beth Mead due back soon, Vivianne Miedema due back during the winter and Cloe Lacasse and Alessia Russo now on board, the attack looks crowded.
Just had a lovely chat with @Kaylan_Marckese about a career that has taken her from her native US, to Iceland, Denmark and now Arsenal.

As you would expect, Arsenal have scouts and coaching staff in Australia and New Zealand at the World Cup with Jonas Eidevall also expected to fly out for the knockout stages. (Their brief will also include watching existing players in the squad).
We are not currently aware of an imminent signings save for one offer for a player with several offers to weigh up, whose future is set to be decided after the World Cup. (That doesn’t mean that other stuff isn’t happening, of course, it’s just that that is all we know at the moment). I expect Arsenal to try to add another midfielder and another defender before the end of the window, at this stage.
